I keep hesitating to post this but I think I will just do it.
These are some songs that I wrote in the summer of 2002, that I have collected into an “album.” They are all from the same period in my life - 20, in university, feeling isolated and struggling with my anxiety and depression issues in a major way for the first time.
I have never considered myself a musician but I am proud of these songs and would rather they exist beyond just inside of me and my computer.
